I love this even more than I expected!!! It’s clearly earl grey, but it also is richer and more powerful than I would normally expect from any earl grey. I highly recommend it!!
This is the coziest tasting tea in my cupboard. Every sip is part tea, part earl grey, and part comfort. I especially like that though there’s strong flavoring to this tea, it’s still clearly tea. A lovely way to kick off this week!
Update: The baby might love this tea, too, as he’s kicking around a lot more than is typical at this time of day. That, or he hates it. I’m going to go with love, though. :)
Another Update: This tea is best pretty hot. As it cools to the temperature which I normally prefer my tea, it’s a bit bitter.
I do love this tea. I like it best really hot. This cup taught me that as I made it, stepped out to do a few things, and came back to my typically favored really warm cup. At that point I thought it could really use some sugar. Now it’s even cooler and I’m not digging it too much. But one cup of not-digging-it-as-much tea is worth it to have a better understanding of how to serve it.
Another gross day outside, another hot pot of tea to keep warm indoors! I love this Earl Grey. It’s a strong one, and rich, but it is everything I want Earl Grey to be. I suspect people used to the more standard Earl Grey might find this objectionable, but for those looking for something more, this is probably it.
